That's pretty much exactly what the stat "RC/9" (runs created per 9 innings) formulates. They're pretty close, but Dunn has the edge...
: 7.8 RC/9 in 2007; 7.3 RC/9 for his career.
: 7.1 RC/9 in 2007; 6.7 RC/9 for his career.
As you can see, a lineup full of Dunn's would theortically score more runs than a lineup of Ichiros. Personally, I'd probably rather have Dunn, although Ichiro's superior speed and defense would be nice to have.
